Supervision & training
I qualified as a Person Centred Counsellor Supervisor in 2005 and provide supervision to student, newly qualified and experienced counsellors. Although my qualification is in Person Centred/Humanistic counselling and supervision my vast experience has enabled me to work in a integrative manner, using spiritulatiy and creativity as core features of my practice.View supervision profile
